Cyanine Dyes (CD) are an organic compound used in a wide range of applications, including photography and bioimaging. The most well-known features of CDs include high molar extinction coefficients up to 105 L mol-1cm-1 and absorption spectra spanning 500 nm to 1000 nm, which can be fine-tuned by lengthening the central methylene bridge or changing the terminal heterocycles. In recent decades, new synthetic methodologies have been developed to address the limits of traditional synthetic processes, such as microwave-assisted and solid-phase procedures. While the microwave approach reduces the amount of time reagents and products are exposed to heat, the solid-phase method provides for simpler synthesis procedures, resulting in higher yields and easier product purification

While the microwave approach reduces the amount of time reagents and products are exposed to heat, the solid-phase method provides for simpler synthesis procedures, resulting in higher yields and easier product purification. The current study examines solid-phase approaches for the synthesis of asymmetrical CDs in depth, as well as a critical review of the distinctions between the various solid-state methodologies now accessible. Cyanine Dyes (CD) are organic functional dyes with a chemical structure that consists of two nitrogen atoms connected by a single or multiple methane group to form a delocalized system with an odd number of atoms. With electrons delocalized along the entire molecular backbone and the positive charge on the nitrogen, the total structure is completely conjugated, resulting in CDs that are a resonance hybrid of two configurations. With each addition of a methylene unit, the conjugated carbon bridge plays a key structural role in the photophysical properties of CDs, inducing a bathochromic shift of about 100 nm. Cyanines can span a large percentage of the visible spectrum by varying the length of the Polymethine Bridge. CDs were one of the most researched classes of chromophores for a variety of applications, including photography, sensors, fluorescence imaging, data storage, nucleic acid labelling, medicine, and dyessensitised solar cells, due to their peculiar characteristics and remarkable molar extinction coefficients of 1.5-3 x 105 L mol-1cm-1. CDs are named based on the length of the chain between the two nitrogen atoms. One, three, five, and seven methine units are found in mono-, tri-, penta-, and heptamethine dyes, respectively. However, a classification system based on the chemical structure of nitrogen-containing groups is widely mentioned. Streptocyanines have no terminal heterocyclic groups, hemicyanines have only one terminal heterocyclic group, and closed chain cyanines have two heterocyclic groups at the chain edges. To further subclassify heterocyclic compounds like indole, benzoindole, benzoxazole, benzothiazole, benzoselenazole, quinaldine, and lepidine, the nature of these structures is used. The nature of the two terminal groups not only identifies the CDs, but also has an impact on the electrical behaviour of the dye as a whole. When the terminal moieties on the margins of the polymethine chain are identical, the dye has an even electron density distribution, and these cyanines are referred to as symmetrical. The CDs are classified as asymmetrical when the termini differ from one another. The heterocyclic precursors must have a methyl group at or near the nitrogen atom in both cases, which raises the methyl acidity when quaternized. Except for monomethine cyanines, the most frequent synthesis technique for symmetrical CDs is to combine two equivalents of quaternary ammonium salts with the polymethine chain linker in a one-pot procedure. The overall reaction mechanism involves several steps, starting with (I) increased deprotonation of the quaternary ammonium salt's methyl group, which results in the formation of a nucleophilic methylene unit by a base (e.g. triethylamine, pyridine, acetate salts). The active methylene I attacks the dianilide-based linker, forming a new carbon-carbon bond, and (ii) stimulates electronic rearrangement, resulting in the release of a secondary amine as a leaving group. The hemicyanine with a complete conjugated structure is formed after a last proton extraction (iv) by a base. The hemicyanine is then treated with one more likeness the quaternary salt in a similar substance pathway (v and vi) to deliver the last balanced shading. Antecedents incorporate orthoesters for trimethine spans, malondialdehydes and their dianilide-based subordinates for pentamethine frameworks, glutaconaldehyde dianilide, and Vilsmeier-Haack reagent for heptamethine colors, and glutaconaldehyde dianilide and Vilsmeier-Haack reagent for heptamethine color Unsymmetrical tones can likewise be integrated utilizing this strategy. In spite of this, in light of the fact that balanced analogs are made simultaneously, lopsided colors are regularly delivered in helpless yields and need troublesome cleaning. Unsymmetrical CDs can be open utilizing different methodologies in light of the polymethine span length to evade the cutoff points forced by the one-pot combination methodology. Cyanines' set of experiences goes back over a century and it has been examined and utilized in an assortment of logical spaces and applications throughout the long term. Regardless, this color family's manufactured interaction and, all the more significantly, decontaminating conventions have eased back, in the event that not hampered, their arrangement and accessibility available. Natural scientific experts are presently experiencing issues orchestrating unbalanced CDs and confining them from the balanced side item. The philosophy of strong stage amalgamations has been researched in the making of hilter kilter CDs, at first on the most essential and small subsidiaries, and all the more as of late, on water dissolvable heptamethine analogs. By and large, these techniques take into consideration better returns and higher immaculateness paces of the completed compound than conventional strategies. Besides, the essential advantage is from the moderately straightforward purging strategies important to isolate the ideal item from pollutions with huge primary similitude. It is not difficult to foresee that manufactured strategies that diminish the utilization of natural solvents, waste, and response time while further developing item yields and lessening response time will turn out to be progressively significant in the next few decades, driven by the objective of a more supportable and harmless to the ecosystem economy and way of life.
